Hello Families,

Go ahead and complete the spelling and math morning packets, and the supplementary math papers that cover what we are learning this week. We will have our spelling test Monday. Have your student log into Prodigy for extra math practice after completing Compass. Kids should know their logins, but text me on Remind 101 if they cannot remember, and I will look them up . https://play.prodigygame.com/

Please help your child complete the papers about Electric Eels and Octopuses, remember they will need your support to complete these activities. I have assigned some reading in your child’s RAZ Kids ASSIGNMENTS space dome. When you log into this link, you will enter apaalpha as the teacher name. Your child will click on the icon with their name, and then click into their account (fish). We are focusing on MAIN IDEA and beginning to study the lunar cycle. https://www.kidsa-z.com/main/Login?_ga=2.24756090.1537091964.1583802754-606002496.1583802754

Students should log into Compass each day: I have heard that there has been some struggle to get kids to stay on the computers for an hour, so I think we should change it up and look at student’s completed assignments in the PORTFOLIOS. Please have the kids complete 5 activities in math and 5 activities in Language Arts each day. Please break up the work in to reasonable time chunks of 25 or 30 minutes. If the activities have a grade with a percentage, it must be 80% or higher to count as completed work. You must use Internet Explorer for Compass to function correctly and preferably a computer, not a handheld device. https://www.thelearningodyssey.com/ Each student knows their user name and password. Make sure that the third box says apa, NOT ODYSSEY. Please contact me through Remind 101 if you have any trouble.

I’ve asked the kids to show me their portfolios before I let them log into Prodigy. Make sure that they have at least 5 activities completed and are scoring 80% or better for each subject. They have all clicked their portfolios at school, they know how to do that. Don’t let them pretend that they don’t. Hold them accountable to complete their work and help them make amazing growth even when we aren’t at school.

On Monday I will collect:

  • Math and Spelling packets.
  • Eels and Octopuses.
  • math packets /papers

Over the weekend I will be checking:

  • Compass completion.
  • Raz Kids Assignment completion. (Moon assignment)
  • Prodigy progress

PLEASE contact me with Remind 101 if your child is struggling to log into Raz Kids, Compass, or Prodigy.

Have fun, stay well, and tell the kids I miss them.

For this assignment, please consult the appropriate Band.
